The Korean horror movie "Voices" ("Someone Behind You"- 2007) has been selected as one of this year's "8 Films to Die For III", a list annually issued by the After Dark Horrorfest, which runs this year from January 9 to 15, across 31 states, including Washington DC, New York, and Maryland.

"Voices" ("Someone Behind You") is a supernatural thriller that revolves around a young girl who fears her family may want her dead. The film has been highly praised for its realistic portrayal of a family with a dark secret, especially in the agonizing moments when the girl discovers that she will be sacrificed to relieve her family of its curse. The film was directed by Oh Ki-hwan, who is known for directing such Korean blockbusters as "Last Present" (2000) and "The Art of Seduction" (2005). This is Oh's first attempt at the horror genre.

The After Dark Horrorfest is an annual celebration for the horror genre that showcases eight films that run the spectrum of horror, thriller, gore and supernatural. The festival generally features movies that have been deemed too graphic or disturbing for general audiences.

Other thrillers featured at the festival include, "Autopsy", "The Broken", "Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations", "Dying Breed", "From Within", "Slaughter", and "Perkins 14".

Washington, DC Area Screening Locations:
Washington: 50 Massachusetts Ave. NE. (202)842-4455
Baltimore: 7000 Arundel Mills Cir. Hanover, MD (443)755-8992
